We provide PRP treatment for skin rejuvenation in Delhi and Gurgaon. Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy also referred to as Dracula or vampire therapy. Patients blood is drawn like for a routine blood test, it is processed and platelet rich component of the blood is injected in the area of concern.
If these are your skin issues then you are right candidate for PRP
Are you noticing dark circles and puffiness under your eyes?
Are you seeing fine lines and sagging around your mouth, cheeks, and eyes?
Is your skin tone just not as bright, healthy, and firm as it used to be?
PRP is a natural product created from your own body. A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet rich plasma, or PRP.
Platelets are the cells in the blood that help tissue to heal and grow new cells. The PRP, injected into specific areas of the skin, act as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow, regenerates tissue, and thus acts as to naturally smooth and tighten the skin. In this way, PRP softens wrinkles and creating smoother skin texture and tone.
PRP has a long history of being used in orthopedic medicine, dentistry,and reconstructive surgery, and now its benefits are being applied to other fields of medicine such as dermatology, skin wound healing, and cosmetic facial rejuvenation. Scientific studies dating back 30 years have documented that PRP grows new collagen when injected into the skin, and newer studies show that PRP can soften sun damage and aging skin issues.
Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm , are composed of solid material that fills lines and skin folds. These fillers are indicated to soften deeper lines such as the folds around the mouth area, or to plump lips. They usually last from 6-18 months; repeated treatments are required to fill the area again.
PRP stimulates your own collagen to grow for total facial rejuvenation rather than individual wrinkle improvement. PRP is used for volumizing faces that are beginning to look drawn, to plump out cheek indentations, soften under eye hollows , improve the skin tone, tightness, and texture, and fill in areas where hyaluronic acid fillers cannot reach or are not safe to use.
Restylane and Juvederm can be used with PRP as the two types of treatments are meant for different purposes; they supplement each other to give the best final outcome of a more youthful looking face. Restylane and Juvederm fill specific lines and folds; PRP improves overall volume, fullness, and skin tone. PRP acts to improve overall quality, tightness, and texture of the skin rather than filling individual deeper wrinkles.
A small amount of blood will be drawn from you. While the PRP is being prepared, your skin will be cleansed and prepared for the treatment. The injections take a few moments, and are only mildly uncomfortable. The procedure is quick (15 minutes total), relatively painless, and requires no post procedure care or time off from daily events. Mild swelling, redness, or bruising fade within 1-3 days. The PRP is made from your own cells, virtually eliminating the possibility of negative side effects.
The goal of PRP skin rejuvenation therapy is to improve skin tone and texture, tighten skin, soften lines and pores. Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time. Three treatment sessions are generally recommended, spaced 1-2 months apart, to achieve the best outcome.
PRP therapy can be combined with laser treatments, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, Restylane, Juvederm, Botulinum to best target a patient's unique issues and thus achieve the final goal of younger looking skin. Maintenance PRP treatments should be given over time.
Using insulin syringe and dermaroller, platelet rich plasma is injected into the dermis of skin which starts a natural healing process by stimulating new collagen formation, revascularization and repair. That’s how PRP therapy gradually improves the skin texture and vitality by reducing the wrinkles and fine lines from the face and neck.
You can expect more youthful look in terms of skin tightening effect and glow on your skin while wrinkles and under eye circles will be taken care of to a great extent.
It is equally effective in both men and women.
The pain is subjective and patient specific. PRP is injected using insulin syringe which is generally well tolerated. For sensitive individuals, we suggest numbing gel or topical anesthesia one hour prior to procedure which reduces the pain sensation considerably. Alternately, nerve blocks can be given for better pain control.
PRP therapy is safe and natural because the procedure concentrates the cells from your own blood directly back into the area where it is needed. Hence is not rejected by your immune system and there are absolutely no chance of getting any infection, allergy or hypersensitivity. However, one can get mild redness, bruising or headache which is usually self-limiting and responds very well to routine analgesics.
PRP therapy is a lunch-time procedure and it takes around half an hour for the procedure and you can go back to your work place immediately after it.
You can wash your face after 6 hours of PRP therapy with mild soap and water.
PRP therapy can be repeated every 1-2 months and usually 3 sittings are sufficient, though some patients may require maintenance therapy once a year or more frequently depending upon the care and condition of their skin. After approximately 3 weeks, you will start noticing the improvement in texture and complexion of your skin; wrinkles start disappearing, scars and pores are tightened and dark under eye circles are brightened.
Nothing much; except not to touch or scratch the face for 6 hours after the procedure. And try keeping yourself away from the dusty and polluted environment for a day.
